Getting out of the parking lot was a bit of a challenge as at least one car apparently got stuck in the muddy conditions and blocked many of us in. An hour later we escaped the field and made our way towards West Springfield and its supercharger as well as our hotel.
Of course, the fireworks were a nice distraction!
